May Special
Mother’s Day this May could be bittersweet. So many of our healthcare workers are mothers, where the fear of catching and bringing the virus home is overwhelmed by the thought of leaving our children motherless if, often lacking the proper PPE, we join those patients who succumb to the disease. From another perspective, those of us with elderly mothers, watching mass infections overtake nursing homes, face having no chance to say goodbye. For the month of May, documents longer than 50 pages addressing motherhood in a social context receive 15% off.
